ago that then young senator obama was facing the same questions governor romney is now about whether he had a fitness to be commander in chief. he was facing the questions not just from republicans in 2008 but from democrats and his own v.p. nominee biden who said before the 2008 election, at some point, he will be tested as a young commander in chief. they believe inside the white house he has passed that test. >>shepard: the attack on the consequence last left the president on the defensive. >> in doubt there is a vulnerability for the president on foreign policy because of what happened in benghazi. that is why mitt romney sees an opening. and our latest polling this month, it shows on the question of who do you trust more to handle foreign policy, the president is leading 52 percent to 41 percent. it was higher for him in september, at 54 percent trusting him more in september. a little bit of a shift in october. the bottom line, again, they feel confident in chicago and the campaign headquarters there, they believe the president has the edge over mitt romney although it has dipp

intellect and a prosecutor's drive to countless battles in the senate. president obama came out this afternoon and said that specter was always a fighter from the days of starching out prosecution as a prosecutor in philadelphia and three decades of service in the senate. he was fiercely independent, never putting part or ideology ahead of the people he was chosen to serve. former president george w. bush said he loved our country and served it with integrity for three decades in the united states senate. we appreciate his contributions to america and are grateful for his many years of public service. he died at 11:39 this morning from complications of lymphoma and that the service is going to be on tuesday in penn valley, pennsylvania. he served as a democrat, then a republican, and then a democrat again. he was part of 13 supreme court confirmation hearings and crossed party lines during the robert bork hearing voting against bork which was seen as an important factor in that failed nomination, long before he became pennsylvania's longest serving senator, he was the district a

feed a state senator who was under scandal, who saw barack obama win the u.s. senate race because his main opponent took his wife to strip clubs who won the presidency after eight years of george w. bush. i don't think he's had his back against the wall. i love it. it's fascinating to see the character of this man and see how he responds. >> well, you know, you can't show up to the next debate if you're the president of the united states clearly accompanied by a level of disdain that was so apparent visually. what am i doing here with this guy? he had absolutely no respect for mitt romney. you know, you hear that over and over again internally, but he showed it visually. he showed it when he was on stage with governor romney the other night. he cannot show up like that again. >> it was also a strategy, though. he was playing four corners offense. he felt like he had a lead and took the air out of the ball. he can't afford to do that. there's still four weeks left. he'll be a totally different guy in the next debate. >> i don't think so. i think he arises to the occasion and it will be

that barack obama's budget was put in the house and senate and got revoked. that a stellar argument that we're going to talk about barack obama's budget because he's gotten zero votes in house and senate. when you are negotiating, it's hard to negotiate with yourself. the democrats of never figured out a way to get their coalition around one thing, especially in the house. we look forward to negotiating with them and increasing job growth. host: have democrats given up? guest: that is completely untrue. we've invested a lot of money in this district. the real story here is this race is in play at all and the first place. the reason it is employees because before there was a tea party, steve king was the tea party. he was the original tea party. this race should not be in play. this is a longtime incumbent and has been in a long time. it should have never come into play. he was checked out of the district and cared more about hanging out with michele bachmann. last time i checked, there is no border there. this race is in play and we are all in. guest: they're all in without any money. steve

there. >> you know, i had to laugh. because while it is true, senator obama did not have a lot of foreign policy experience, what he did to shore that up was to bring in joe biden as his vp candidate. what did mitt romney do? he brought in paul ryan who has even less, if you could imagine that, foreign policy experience except maybe perhaps voting against tougher sanctions on iran while he was in congress. as far as that argument's concerned, i think it's rather debunked. i want to read to you very quickly a quote from mitt romney from that video with the 47%. this is his -- this is his foreign policy in a nutshell. so what do you do -- this is about peace in the middle east. you say you move things along the best way you can. you hope for some degree of stability. but you recognize this is an unsolved problem and we kick the ball down the field and hope ultimately somehow something will happen and resolve it. that's what mitt romney said on foreign policy behind closed doors. whatever he says today in a couple of hours, you got to juxtapose that to that quote in the video when

in the u.s. senate. in 2008 as a presidential canada, the obama juggernaut was too much for hillary as she woefully mismanaged her campaign. again, no matter. the new president rewarded hillary by appointing her secretary of state. in washington, you see, it's all about jobs, and obama needed bill clinton's support in and connections. over the past four years mrs. clinton has covered the globe, setting a record for most miles traveled by any secretary of state, but miles don't equal competence. a fact made nakedly clear at the u.s. consulate in benghazi last september 11th. because hillary still thinks it takes a village instead of automatic weapons, there were no marines deployed to either the embassy in tripoli or the ben benghazi consulate. in a spasm of foggy idealism, deep faith was entrusted in the unreliable local libya militias and a skeleton security staff. this in a country still immersed in the throes of revolution. it is no secret that the secretary of state, a former anti-war activist, is on record for her disparaging opinions of military presence. the hearing held last wednes
